Cheap Flights to Daytona Beach

These hard-packed 20 miles of beach have been the site of sunbathing, picnicking and partying for many years. No matter who you are, if you’re looking for a good time, Daytona Beach can supply it. 

Flights to Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB) is a small and manageable airport right next to the famous Daytona International Speedway. It serves about 600,000 passengers a year on its two routes. The first service is to and from Charlotte, North Carolina, and is operated by US Airways. The second is between Daytona Beach and Atlanta, Georgia, operated by Delta. 

All major rental car companies serve the airport, and since Daytona is known as a car-crazy town, most visitors opt for wheels of their own. There are also taxis, shuttles, and a bus service available. 

What to Do in Daytona Beach

The clue is in the name: the biggest attraction here is the beach itself, where you can bake in the sun, enjoy the tacky splendor of 70’s-era architecture, laze along the boardwalk, and amuse yourself at a host of old-school arcades. The cars come a close second. Motorsports are a way of life in this part of the world, with NASCAR races and associated events filling up the calendar pretty much year-round. 

If you want a little more than the beach and the racetrack, Daytona also has some historical and cultural experiences worth exploring. The gorgeous Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is one of the tallest lighthouses in the country, beautifully preserved and full of fascinating information about its history. 

The nearby Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS) has a little bit of everything, from international cultural artifacts to Coke memorabilia, a planetarium, fine art, and vintage cars. 

The Marine Science Center is another great spot where you can have close encounters with rescued marine wildlife, including sea turtles. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with the kids. 

Advice to Tourists Visiting Daytona Beach

Deciding just when to visit will depend on your goals. If you’d like to avoid the hottest temperatures as well as the busy Speedweeks and the rowdy Spring Breakers, May is probably the best month for a trip. You can count on balmy temperatures in the 70s and 80s by day.
